off the map

Life in the country.  Tree frogs wooping at the setting sun.  Thunder rattling the timbers of the farm house, rain pouring down from the top porch.  Uncle Philip's cows mooing at an SUV that is coming up the dirt road, flinging pebbles in its wake.  No internet, no TV, no microwave.

Talk about a stark difference from our other life. 

So every now and then, we come over to Aunt KK's and put in a DVD of Dumbo and I get on the computer and catch up the blog.

At an airport somewhere on our way around the world.

Ready for surgery in Little Rock. 
In recovery.  She did great, and never let go of her chapstick!
All bandaged up.  The shoulder lesion won't get worked on until next time.
Old Fort Days Rodeo with the Wood family!
We stayed up until 10 p.m. to see the bull riding.  We had some tired buckaroos on our hands!
Fresh blackberries from Spiro, Oklahoma, gifted to us from Ms. Allison.  We (obviously) made cobbler and served it hot with ice cream!!
A cookout on a cool night.
Jubilee's first chance to eat a s'more, and she declined.  She'll catch on soon enough.

All of MoMo's grandkids except Glory.
Zion's 5-year-old Initiation Into Boyhood camping trip.
A Monday morning breakfast outing to Paul's for the world's BEST doughnuts.
The amount of delicious milk readily available in this country is staggering. 

Until my next brief overview post, happy June!
